WVU CED introduces Employment Services to connect people with disabilities to employers

Wednesday, October 25, 2023

The WVU CED now offers Employment Services to help West Virginians with disabilities find jobs. This initiative was launched during National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and will remain a full-time service moving forward.

As businesses and organizations seek quality workers, they continue to find that hiring and retaining individuals with disabilities strengthens their company with an array of experience, talent and skill while showing a commitment to diversity in the workplace.

WVU CED Employment Services connects job-seeking clients with disabilities to the businesses that hire them in order to find the perfect match. We work one-on-one with individuals to help them prepare for employment and find the right job. Employment Services also strives to refer great candidates to employers and offer technical assistance on disability-related labor issues.

Services offered include:

- Employment counseling
- Skill assessments
- Career exploration/interests
- Resume writing
- Interview preparation and mock interviews
- Assistance with job-seeking and applications
- Information on disabilities in the workplace and Equal Opportunity
